Tour itinerary:

Tbilisi – Telavi – Shumi Winery – Alaverdi Monastery – Lekso’s Winery – Tbilisi
Our Kakheti wine tour starts at 09:00 from Tbilisi. We depart for Georgia’s Kakheti region, the centerpiece of the country’s 8,000-year winemaking history. The beautiful road to Kakheti goes over the Gombori Pass (2 h, 100 km) before reaching Telavi, the region’s administrative and historical centre. Make a short stop in Telavi at the monument to Erekle II and the giant, centuries-old plane tree. Continue to Shumi Winery to explore the wine museum and the production facilities, before enjoying a traditional lunch accompanied by premium Shumi wines. Next, drive to the ancient Alaverdi Monastery, which has one of the tallest cathedrals in Georgia. Standing amid vines and with the Caucasus mountains in the background, this architectural masterpiece also features unique 11th- to 17th-century frescoes. The final stop of our day tour to Kakheti is a private winery, Lekso’s Marani, where you’ll visit the traditional Georgian wine cellar. End the tour in style as you taste different wines produced at Lekso’s Marani using the traditional Georgian process of making wine in clay vessels buried in the earth (qvevri). After this, return to your hotel in Tbilisi.
